Thumbs Up 
That's a very nice idea mate...

Configuring the Pine64 with a similar tool to the Raspi.

This should be rather interesting to see if we can incorporate this into the next build.

Or we can try and include this and test it from our end before it goes into the next build.

Would this system work in Virtual machine? I mean the whole shebang?

Cheers,

Thank you! 
But I couldn't install it 
Code:
ERROR: No arguments specified (ubuntu, debian or opensuse)
You would know how to solve it? 
And again, 
THANK YOU!

All you need to do is to type which distribution you are using (ubuntu, debian or opensuse) after the ./build.sh. (Eg. "./build.sh ubuntu" for Ubuntu). Do note that openSUSE is not supported at the moment, but it is there as a placeholder as I will be supporting it in a future release.

Just wondering, is the script located at /usr/local/sbin? Are there any error messages printed out after you ran it?
